BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon and Taeyang took part in “Infinity Challenge“‘s special tenth anniversary special which included some awesome masked performances by a variety of stars, which were inspired by the song competition show “King of Mask Singer.” The “Infinity Challenge” members are also joined by some celebrity advisers such as Lee Juck and Yoo Hee Yeol to help them guess who each of the masked performers are.
Although fans of the show had heard about the identities of several of the guests before the episode aired, such as G-Dragon, Taeyang, and IU, it seems that the “Infinity Challenge” members were really in the dark about the performers’ identities when they filmed it, which makes for a great episode!
The last performers to take to the stage are G-Dragon and Taeyang, who perform a hip hop song by the 1990s duo Yook Kak Soo that’s inspired by Korean traditional music. They’re both wearing costumes and masks, with G-Dragon’s mask bearing a striking resemblance to “Infinity Challenge” member Park Myung Soo, and they try to disguise their voices as they sing. Those pink gloves they’re wearing might also be a nod to fellow BIGBANG member T.O.P’s rumored interest in rubber gloves.
After the performance, Haha says he’s sure that they’re hip hop artists. Many of the panelists are stumped because the two are such good singers. It’s even suggested at one point that they might just actually be Yook Kak Soo staging a comeback.
Yoo Hee Yeol guesses that they’re the comic rock duo Norazo, because of the accessories he can see under their costumes.
They then ask IU, who has correctly guessed all the other contestants so far. “I’m pretty sure it’s Taeyang,” she says confidently, to the shock of the other panelists. “It sounded like his voice. He was making his voice scratchy to hide it, but he was also dancing way too well.”
Haha goes further by saying that the duo seem to be either G-Dragon and T.O.P or G-Dragon and Taeyang.
MC Yoo Jae Suk then turns to the duo to ask them if they usually perform as a duet. “Yes, well, sometimes…” answers Taeyang in his mask. His voice has been distorted for him, but he tries to disguise it more himself, which cracks the panel up.
